HelioCampus has a new knowledge base to provide an expanded library of content and support usage of the Assessment & Credentialing platform!
Review this new knowledge base for improved help content related to Course Syllabus Defaults:
Updated: January 2022
Description: As an admin, you have the ability to view and/or edit the Course/Co-curricular Activity Catalog level Syllabi that belong to your Department, College, or Institution. Once the Syllabus Template has been created on the Institution, College, or Department levels, it may then be customized on the Course/Co-curricular activity level by the appropriate admin. Once you have completed editing your Syllabi on the Course/Co-curricular Activity level, Instructors will then be able to edit the Syllabus in greater detail on the Section level. As an admin, you also have the ability to assign a Syllabus Template to a Course; to learn how to do so, please see the following User Guide on How to Attach a Syllabus Template to a Course.
Applicable to: Institution Admin, College Admin, Department Admin, Course Coordinator
